I am trying to set the entire paragraph fully justified, with the last line only centered. I tried using "shift-enter" and then centering, but that centered the entire paragraph.

This is how it looks now (with just "shift-enter"): enter image description here

This is how it looks when i do "shift-enter" and then center: this (styles also affect the entire paragraph) if i do not use "shift-enter", the second to last line becomes right aligned (in right to left mode)

  • When I do this I add an extra line space or two at the end of the first part, align the second part and then go back to the line breaks at the beginning of the line and delete with the Delete Key (not Backspace). That normally works - see if it works for you – John Dec 22 '19 at 0:41
  • thanks, I tried it. As long as there is nothing other than a line break ("shift-enter") separating the lines, the alignment merges. – heshy Dec 22 '19 at 4:10
  • Have you tried using a centre tab on the last line? – DavidPostill Dec 22 '19 at 9:47
  • So is your problem solve? – John Dec 22 '19 at 11:17

This is not possible, since the alignment applies to the whole paragraph.

You may solve the problem by:

  • Use multiple paragraphs with multiple alignments, while using a style that suppresses inter-paragraphs spacing
  • Use tabs and manual line-ends to position the text.
